I’ll admit I’m not really a fan of the Brown Derby. The last time I was there for dinner, the food was just so-so, the service was terrible and it was loud. I also felt like I was being rushed through my meal so they could turn over my table quickly. I do, however, like the lounge and visit there as often as I can so I’m excited to share the new items added to the lounge menu.
As shared on the Disney Parks Blog:
There’s no better place in Disney’s Hollywood Studios to see and be seen than The Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge. Especially with the addition of small plates and beverages with the newly renovated outdoor bar.
New small plates include grilled Bloody Mary-marinated shrimp and chorizo and heirloom tomatoes on toasted ciabatta with garlic herb butter and a new seasonal soup — Zellwood Corn Bisque, served with a corn and lobster fritter and Ancho chili oil. Or share the Crispy Bites, featuring parmesan and goat cheese risotto sticks with a peach-habanero chili sauce, Brie with a sweet onion and orange jam, and affiné blue and mushroom arancini with a fig and balsamic dip. These new tastes join favorites like The Famous Hollywood Brown Derby Cobb Salad, Derby Sliders, and Artisanal Cheeses and Charcuterie Board.
New additions to the drink menu include a Mint Julep made with premium reserve bourbon; the new Bloody Mary turns up the heat with pepper-infused vodka and a garnish of olives, spicy pickles, and pickled green beans; a Champagne Cocktail with sweet and floral elderflower liqueur and Fairytale by Iron Horse Celebration Cuvee (exclusive to Walt Disney Parks and Resorts); Sangria; and, my favorite, the Grapefruit Cake Martini — a delicious twist on the classic dessert.
Stop by The Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge to take in the sights, sounds and tastes of Hollywood and leave feeling like a star!
